Synopsis

This Oscar-winning biopic traces the life of Pu Yi, the last of the great emperors of China, from his ascent to the throne at age three, in 1908, to the time he was imprisoned in the Forbidden City, witnessing decades of cultural and political upheaval.

MUBI's take

Famed for being the first western shot in The Forbidden City, Bernardo Bertolucci’s The Last Emperor is both an ornate epic and intimate character study. Winner of 9 Academy Awards® including Best Picture, this fresh, contemplative historical drama features music by David Byrne & Ryûichi Sakamoto!
